Sakura Spirit

Here's a great stamp called Sakura Spirit designed by Sweet Pea artist Merdith Dillman (plate #137). I love her wonderful images. I really wanted this image to stand out on a card, so I used a simple background of metallic glazed paper and added a wonderful punch on top in a color that matched her eyes. I used five shades of blues on her outfit and extremely pale colors on her skin tones, almost like china white. Though the image is not an anime image at all, it very much makes me think of that due to the color scheme.

Meredith Dillman has a huge variety of images and they are all very detailed and wonderful fun for coloring, which I enjoy! She's definitely one of my Sweet Pea favorites.

Have a great day!
